PEABODY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Six years after he jumped out of a third story window, a Peabody woman has been reunited with her cat.
Margaret Kudzma of Peabody is thrilled. The cat, named "Mini Max," pushed through a screen at Margaret's condominium and fell three stories, disappearing without a trace.
"Right when I was leaving work, I checked my messages and there was a number I didn't recognize," she said.
That number was a veterinarian in Wakefield, who had picked Mini Max up and scanned his microchip.
Margaret had almost given up hope.
"I couldn't even look at his photo anymore, because it just made me so sad," she said. As soon as the vet said the words "microchip" and "gray and white," Kudzma said she had to put the phone down, because she knew that was her long-lost cat.
There was a silver lining to the whole ordeal. Kudzma made friends during her years of searching, and said she and the group returned well over a hundred lost cats to their owners before Mini Max returned home.
"It's a miracle," she said.
